We were so proud to have our new running track opened by double Olympian and Commonwealth medallist Liz Yelling this week.
There are so many health and well-being benefits from using this type of equipment. As a school we complete ‘the Daily Mile’ which is a social physical activity, with children running or jogging – at their own pace – in the fresh air with friends. It’s social, non-competitive and fun and the
children return to class ready to learn.
We have already seen the track being used by a really diverse group of children. It’s great to see so many children enjoying it so much! We cannot wait to see what other events and activities we can use this exciting facility for.
On Thursday 14th March the Y4 football team went to the Christchurch 6 aside football tournament.
There were 8 teams there which included
Christchurch team 2
Our first game was St Joseph’s which we won 2-0
Second game was with Christchurch team 2 which we lost 1-0
Third game was with Twynham which we won 2-0
This meant we made it through to the final.
In the final we played Mudeford and lost 2-0
We had great team work and played really well together
Well done Burton

On Tuesday 30th October, Jake, Jermaine, Isobel, Maddy, Ruby, Alice, Charlie and Jacob went to The Grange to take part in a Dare to Believe festival. This is all about taking part and having fun!
First we had a go at indoor curling then sitting volley ball, elephant ball, obstacle relay, indoor cricket and Bocia. Lots of activities we have never done before. It was good fun.

Sports Leadership Academy
On Tuesday 9th October, 10 children from Burton Primary School went to The Grange to take part in Sports Leader Training. It was a very active day! First we had to think about what skills were needed to be a good Sports Leader and then we learnt lots and lots of different games and warm ups. We then had a go at making up our own games and had to teach our friends. In the last session we thought about what we would like to do when we got back to school.
Our new Y5 Sports Leaders are: Luca, Natasha, James, Josh, Morgan, Dannie, Scarlett and Robert
Our new Y6 Sports Leaders are: Ava and Harry
